The Thermoplastic-Photoconductor medium on a transparent polyester tape base is the subject of this paper. Specific areas of interest that will be covered are the use of the tape for holographic and bit serial optical data recording. The tape functions at speeds up to 30 ips and we report this performance with projections to 60 ips on both 4 mil and 1 mil substrates. High contrast reconstructions of 1-D holograms recorded on the moving tape (at a carrier frequency of 800 LP/mm) are shown as well as bit serial data bits (3 μm bits on 7 μm center) with a readout S/N of 10:1.
